Howdy. I know you stayed at the apartments for your surgery at Ford with Dr. Menon.
 
The literature says they have wi-fi but only in the lobby. However, when I stayed there for one night for my consultation, I was able to get a signal in my apartment. It worked fine.
 
Were you able to use a computer in your apartment there? Did you get a signal?

Yes I was able to use my computer from the apartment. Their are a few that the signal reaches. If you ask very nicely of the lady at the front desk she will try to put you in one of them.

You should try calling ahead and ask them if one of the units is available. It is nearest the end of the building where the lobby is and directly above. I think I was on the 3rd floor.
